Lagos To Commence Removal Of Abandoned, Accident Vehicles by AutoReportNG: 6:04am On Apr 17


The Lagos State Government on Monday announced plans to commence removal of all abandoned vehicles on roads to complement emergency recovery efforts and prevent mishaps on streets and major highways in the State.

The State’s Commissioner for Special Duties and Intergovernmental Relations, Mr Oluseye Oladejo, who said this during the ongoing Ministerial Press Briefing to commemorate the third year anniversary of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode-led administration held at the BagaudaKaltho Press Centre in Alausa, said the move was aimed at further addressing traffic decongestion and averting security challenges associated with abandoned vehicles.

Already, Oladejo said the Governor has approved the creation of Vehicle Recovery Unit to solely see to the removal of abandoned and accident vehicles on the roads which would be under the Ministry of Special Duties, adding that plans were being firmed up for the take-off of the unit soon.

He said: “The Ministry late in 2017 was given the mandate to set up a unit for vehicle towing and recovery services to remove abandoned and accidental vehicles from our roads.

“I am happy to inform you that the Ministry of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Relations has gotten approval from His Excellency, the Governor, to set up a Towing and Recovery Unit in the Ministry to complement the emergency rescue efforts of the State.

“This speaks largely to efforts in terms of prevention to mop up abandoned vehicles in all nooks and crannies in the State and also to make sure that broken down vehicles are promptly removed to prevent mishaps on the highways. For the smooth take-off of the Unit, the Governor also directed that equipment and towing trucks of various capacities be procured to be able to remove vehicles of whatever make and size.”

Speaking further, the Commissioner said as part of efforts to improve the functionality of Fire Service Department and to efficiently manage disasters, the Governor has also approved the recruitment of additional 150 firefighters who would join the newly inducted 100, while 70 ad-hoc staff of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) had already been absorbed into the State civil service.

“We have also scaled up the functionality of the firefighters with the induction of a new set of 100 operatives. These firefighters have just completed their mandatory training and have been inducted into the fire service to join the existing firefighters. We have also recently recruited additional 150 fire officers who are currently undergoing training and will be inducted into the fire service in the next few months.

“To continue to comprehensively manage disasters in the State, His Excellency, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode absorbed over 70 ad hoc staff of the Agency into the mainstream of the State Civil Service in November 2017. His Excellency also approved payment of special allowance for staff of the Agency. The idea is to get the best out of these workers who have demonstrated uncommon dedication and commitment to duty,” Oladejo said.

Besides, the Commissioner said within the last one year, two new fire stations were established in Bolade-Oshodi and Abesan, while approval had been granted for the creation of four stations to be located in Safety Arena, Eredo-Epe, Olorunda-Badagry and Ijegun-Satelite Town.

In addition, Oladejo said the fire stations in Alausa, Ikeja, Isolo, Agegeilupeju, Badagry-Suru, Ikotun, and Agege were upgraded to further guarantee prompt response to fire and other distress calls, adding that all the stations totalling 16 were not only fully operational but strategically situated to provide swift and effective services to people across the State.

wonders why a state can function like a federation and the host country as a colony. All accidented Dangote truck on major highways are often abandoned till scavangers tore them apart. I think there should be penalty for all these recklesness buy truck owners and small cars.
